Multicultural Playwright Program

This three-day program is designed to give multicultural/refugee students and their teachers a scriptwriting and performance experience. On the third day the students will, after working with the tutors and their teachers, put on a showcase performance providing them with the platform to share their stories.

As well as the three-day workshop, participating schools will have the opportunity to invite a theatre performance mentor to their school for 2 x 2hr workshops to assist with the preparation and devising of the performances for the 3 day workshop. The dates will be negotiated to best fit the participating school in the weeks leading up to the three day program.
